Subject: great show, good sound, minor tracking error
Performance is a very high energy '78, I agree with the highlights mentioned already with the addition that post-drums is better than many in this era. Keith plays well and the drummers are largely in sync, those being the most variable issues in this time frame.

Minor Deadhead note, this is an early outlier "L S D" sequence (Lazy Supplication Deal) which would become common a year or so later, but Deal is a set 2 opener (odd, right?) and Supplication the set 1 closer.

Recording is excellent for the era, very good overall. Could be a little fast as mentioned in another comment but if so I didn't find it too intrusive.

Tracking error is that the bass & drums segment starts in the last couple minutes of the Eyes track, and continues thru about 45 seconds of the track actually labeled "Bass And Drums" - then most of that track is just drums, as is the following track which is labeled "Drums." So the actual timing for "just drums, no Phil" is about 13 minutes.

Subject: Too fast
This is a great show with one of the all-time great Estimated Prophets!

I like the sound on this better than the other circulating AUD, but this recording is too fast and requires pitch correction.

Subject: Great bass.
I really love Auds that make the bass sound this good. I still haven't come to terms with Weir's slide.

Really good show from start to finish with barely an exception (the Iko was a little off). Great setlist, performance and excellent aud sound. Jerry's guitar sounds particularly good on Eyes. Well worth a listen.

Subject: Great show!
I never used to enjoy AUDs but lately I have really been giving them a chance! I have found so many recordings that sound really good once your ears get adjusted. There are some shows that at are so good you have to listen to them, soundboard quality or not! This is one of them! The sound is fairly good for an AUD of this era. Nice full sound, thick bass, good instrument seperation, and a KILLER performance that will get you dancin'! This is one of those AUDs that makes you feel like your there! Check out the Estimated Prophet>Eyes>Drums>Space>Warf Rat>Truckin'>Iko Iko sandwich! I have read reviews that claim the Dead lost their energy in the Spring of '78 but this show will make you think otherwise. Maybe I'm not the best judge because the Dead can do no wrong for me in 1977-1979. I love the "late Keith era" sound. Some people call it "glossy" but I dig the clean instrument sounds. Garcia's Wolf was never in better form. Five stars for the performance and great sounding recording!
